Audi A6 E-Tron Concept is set to part of its line of large, luxurious cars into the electric age with this: the Audi A6 E-Tron. Shown here in concept form, the A6 Avant e-Tron will bear a close resemblance to this show car when it lands in production in 2024.

The Audi A6 e-Tron concept is a more practical iteration of last year’s A6 executive saloon and is set to go on sale alongside a combustion-engined variant. Audi A6 e-Tron concept is 95 percent of what the production version will look like when it lands in production in 2024. The car sits on the same Premium Platform Electric (PPE) platform as the forthcoming Q6 e-Tron SUV which has been co-developed with Porsche. Despite a higher drag coefficient than the saloon Audi claims up to 435 miles should be possible on a charge from the concept.

INTERIOR

Audi hasn’t revealed any images of the interior, but expect it to be more spacious. A tech-heavy cabin is a given, too. There will also be a lot of stuff offered here made from sustainable material. We’ll know more details about the interior when the automaker reveals more images.

POWERTRAIN AND PRICING

Single-motor setup will also be offered on the base trims wherein the motor is mounted on the rear axle. If Audi plans to offer it with a high-capacity battery pack, then expect it to be the most efficient model in the lineup. The A6 e-Tron concept comes with a five-link axle at the front and a multi-link axle at the rear and features Audi’s air suspension with adaptive dampers. You can expect Audi to offer this setup on the production version as well

All the vehicles built on the PPE architecture will come with an 800-volt charging technology as standard. Audi also mentioned that the key elements of the PPE architecture will be to hold a battery module of around 100 kWh between the axles. The EPA-estimated range could be a little under 400 miles. The vehicle will have a high-capacity battery pack that can add up to 186 miles of range in 10 minutes and recuperates from zero to 80 percent in less than 25 minutes at a fast-charging public station.

The details on the pricing are scarce, but a starting price of around $70,000 or 29,365,000.00 Nigerian Naira won’t be a bad guesstimate. This makes it slightly more expensive than the starting price of the non-electric A6 but would overlap it with the top trims of the internal combustion-engine car.

CONCLUSION

Audi has noted that the A6 plays a big role in the company’s history and it won’t change moving forward either. The A6 moniker has been used on sedans, wagons, and now, this EV, too. If the automaker has slapped this e-Tron with the A6 badge, expect it to be a well-built product. The production of the Audi A6 e-Tron production should begin sometime in 2022. At the moment, it doesn’t seem to have a direct rival, but it could take on the Mercedes EQS, BMW i4, Tesla Model s, and Lucid Air. It needs to be seen if Mercedes and BMW will come up with like-for-like electric alter egos for the C-Class and the 5 Series, respectively.
